7 Ways to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Are you a first-time homeowner looking to improve your curb appeal or boost your property values? Or perhaps you’re trying to sell your home, and you want to make a good impression with the home’s exterior for listing photos and drive-bys.

No matter what situation suits you most, the following tips will help you spruce up your yard and add beauty to your landscape.

#1: Add Garden Beds, Outdoor Planters, and Hanging Baskets Around Your Yard

Is your yard pretty bare, and you want to add some personality or pops of color to make the yard more visually appealing and increase your home’s value?

Try purchasing planters and fill them with plants that survive outdoors in your area. Make your planters and garden beds look much more beautiful and protect your plants from winter weather using hardwood mulch or gravel mulch.

#2: Trim Your Shrubs

Are your shrubs overgrown and unsightly, causing your yard to look unkempt? Having an unkempt yard can cause neighbors or potential buyers to assume you’re lazy or a neglectful homeowner, which could hurt your reputation or even cause them to lose interest. 

An easy solution is to trim the shrubs yourself or hire a landscaping company to work for you.

#3: Concrete or Gravel Your Driveways and Walkways

Have you noticed that your vehicles tend to get stuck in the mud, or your shoes get ruins when it rains? If that is the case, check out your driveways and walkways. They are probably just worn paths in the grass or dirt — which isn’t very visually appealing.

The first thing people see when they are looking at your home is the walkway and driveway. The most natural solution is to concrete or gravel your driveways and walkways to add appeal.

#4: Pressure Wash Your House

When you are looking at your house, do you notice that the siding is covered in greenish-blackish mold, or your brick is showing lots of dirt? Not only are you losing curb appeal, but it can also cause health problems, especially for sensitive people.

Not only will pressure washing your house will remove the mold and mildew, but when done correctly, pressure washing can clean your house of grime, bird droppings, and unsightly stains. This improves curb appeal and also makes you happy to come home to your home. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, make sure you hire someone.

#5: Paint Your Front Door

When you are walking up to your door, what do you notice? Is your door looking beat up with cracked paint and scuff marks, or the color isn’t very eye-catching? 

If that is the case, try painting your door a bright or vibrant color that matches your siding and landscape for an attractive color pop and personal touch.  This simple solution will add instant curb appeal.

#6: Line the Walkways with Solar Lights

At night many great memories are made. In that event, it’s hard to see at night. Tripping over things in the yard will mostly happen if you don’t have any light lightning up your walkways.

Lining your sidewalks and walkways with unique solar lights will make your walkways safe and look great during the day.

#7: Decorate With Yard Ornaments and Outdoor Decor

Spending time outside in your yard should make you feel at peace. Your yard may have some plants or trees. However, it lacks anything that showcases the personality of you and your family who are living there.

Purchase yard ornaments or outdoor decor to liven up your yard. Think about adding something that will make you feel at peace and put a smile on your face.
